Patrice Evra Shares Superb Instagram Post To Celebrate The Anniversary Of His Signing

Patrice Evra has brilliantly taken to social media to mark the anniversary of his transfer to Manchester United.

He's posted an image of himself alongside then-United manager Sir Alex Ferguson accompanied with a hilarious caption.

"Sir Alex: "WTF are you wearing son ? You better start running or I will send you back to senegal and put your hand down little French...." He posted on Instagram.

"The rest is history!!" Complete with a bunch of hashtags including #ilovethisgame.

Brilliant.

On this day in 2006, United snapped up Evra in a deal worth £5.5 million and it proved to be a very, very shrewd piece of business.

The left-back enjoyed a prolific spell at Old Trafford, spending nine illustrious seasons at the club.

The Frenchman played over 300 games for United, scoring 10 goals whilst winning the lot as he also donned the captain's armband.

He won the Premier League title an impressive five times, the League Cup on three occasions not to mention the prestigious Champions League in the 2007/08 season.

What a player.
